Kailyn had previously made her reality TV debut on MTV’s 16 and Pregnant, where she documented her first pregnancy at 17 years old with her boyfriend at the time, Jo Rivera. They welcomed son Isaac together in January 2010, but the couple split shortly after Isaac was born.
The Nazareth, Pennsylvania native moved on with boyfriend Jordan Wenner and they dated from 2010 to 2011. After her breakup from Jordan, she met Javi.
Javi and Kail tied the knot in 2012 but split in 2015. Since they share a son together, the former couple’s journey did end after their divorce was finalized in 2016.
In 2017, Javi and Kail appeared on season 9 of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars. In their joint confessional, Javi admitted that he and Kail were not together at the time of filming but he joined the show “to see if maybe that changes.” Meanwhile, Kail confirmed she had “no intentions of getting back together.”
At the time, exes were struggling to get along for the sake of their son. “I really hope that this marriage boot camp can help us figure out how to solve our issues because when I envisioned myself being married, I don’t think that I would ever have anticipated it being this troubled,” she said.
Things between Kail and Javi improved slightly, but tension arose again and their fights played out on social media. In February 2017, Kailyn’s pregnancy with baby No. 3 leaked and many fans thought Javi was the one who revealed the news — which he denied.
Kail and Javi continued to experience ups and downs in their coparenting journey — especially after they each moved on romantically — but things seemed to take a turn four years later when they announced that they would be teaming up for a new project together. The former couple revealed their new venture, a kids’ sports camp, together during an Instagram Live in July 2021.
